OEY,
100-120 years old would put that gun back into the blackpowder era and I would not recommend putting any modern shells through it at all. The barrels would not have been proofed for the pressures generated by smokeless powder and might not hold up. Even if they are good enough to hold up, as your smith pointed out, the strain on the rest of the gun surely would not do it any good. Maybe somebody here can give you some info on buying or loading blackpowder shells if you really want to shoot it.
